Anyone buying or renting this movie expecting a gore fest will be disappointed. In fact anyone expecting a half decent film will be too. The script is almost non-existant, the acting ponderous, wooden & frankly terrible, while the 'special effect' used to represent old home movie footage of young Jeff made me wonder if my tv was faulty.
There have been several notably good, or at least competent, films made about real life serial killers, Boston Strangler, 10 Rillington Place, Bundy, Monster to name but a few, unfortunately "Raising JD" isn't in the same league. In short, it stinks.
Straight to video, then straight to yard sale + trash can... 86 minutes of your life that would be better spent doing something else
